Visiting this cheery, laid-back ice cream shop will give you a great look at Miami's famed "Little Havana" neighborhood while allowing you to indulge in delicious, homemade ice cream! This small but inviting family-owned ice cream shop is quite an eclectic experience. There is always a steady stream of customers walking in from all walks of life and it's nice to watch the families with excited kids and happy customers in general enjoying the delightful flavors!
It is located in the bustling part of Little Havana. There is a chalkboard-painted wall full of hilariously named flavors. However, because they change up their selections daily, their displayed selection is relatively small (about 14? flavors per day). Not to worry, though, as there is something for every ice cream aficionado.
If you look carefully, you will see that the comfy cushions on the bench area inside are actually covered in guayaberas (a traditional shirt worn by many latin men in Miami) that are protected, covered in plastic.
Stop in, choose an ice-cream, then stroll the lively main street of Little Havana and it's distinct latin flavor. The shop is across the street from the famous Domino Park where you can watch tables full of elderly men enjoying a lively game of Dominos with raucous discussions in Spanish and lots of hearty laughter. If you stroll down, there is a cigar shop next door and then an interesting combination bar/antique store/restaurant to stop in to take a peek. The pillars outside have etchings of some famous Cuban figures such as Celia Cruz, Pit Bull and others.
We take all first-time Miami visitors to this place to get a feel for the energy that shapes Miami.
